there are drains for the top on either side. they can get plugged easily. the best way to clear them is will compressed air. there are no diagrams available for them to show you the location but you should be able to find them fairly easily with the top half open. they should be near the rear of the top on either side.

Thanks - but so far I haven't found these drains - can you explain a little more where they are and what they look like? I'm assuming they are in the body of the miata, not in the top...
